NTPC Telangana: Shaping the future of energy with ultra-supercritical technology

PEDDAPALLI, FEBRUARY 12, 2024: NTPC Telangana one of the most modern and power efficient plant of NTPC in India. All the units of this plant are based on ultra-supercritical technology which is an efficient and environment friendly technology for power generation.

Foundation stone of TSTPS (Telangana Super thermal Power Station) was laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2016. Telangana Project Phase 1 is comprised of (2×800 MW). Unit-1 (800 MW) was dedicated to the nation on 3rd October 2023 by  Narendra Modi. Unit-2 of the plant has also successfully completed its 72 hrs trial operation on 11th February 2024. The coal for generation is sourced from SCCL (Singareni Coal Collieries Limited). The water requirement for the plant is met from Yellampalli reservoir on Godavari river.

It is established on the available lands of the existing NTPC Ramagundam plant which is a Beacon of progress and empowerment of the south India. It is a major power generator of South India catering to power requirements of various southern states.

Its vision isn’t limited to thermal power only, but also extends to the diverse renewable portfolio consisting of land solar and floating solar plant, with 100 MW Floating solar and 10 MW ground solar. This 100 MW floating solar is the India’s largest Floating Solar plant.

Telangana Plant being the most efficient power station of NTPC in India, this will reduce specific coal consumption and CO2 emissions, making it one of the most environmentally compliant power station in India.

NTPC Telangana in addition to its core mission of generating electricity, has steadfastly committed to the environment. A mass tree plantation was done at NTPC Telangana near balancing reservoir with Miyawaki Method on 13th Dec’23.  Approx 71,000 nos saplings are targeted to be planted by Mar’24.

“By 2030, the peak electricity demand is likely to cross 400 GW, indicating the fast growth of the economy. The demand grew at 9% last year, and is growing at 10% this year. On a daily basis, the demand is 8 GW – 10 GW more than the same day previous year. There is no other market as big and growing as fast as us”- said Union Power Minister R K Singh. He also informed that in 2014, the peak demand was around 130 GW while today it is in the region of 243 GW.

And Telangana (2×800 MW) Plant is here with its ultra-supercritical technology to fulfil this demand. Along with this NTPC Ramagundam is also planning to expand its renewable energy to add 120 MW ground solar and 56 MW Floating solar.

This project will help in strengthening the overall economic growth in the region. NTPC Telangana Project will give 85% of its power to the state. Along with Telanagana other beneficiary states are Karnataka, Tamilnadu, Puducherry, Andhra Pradesh & Kerala.
